Track Name: Better Off
Tell me how do you feel in a job you cannot stand? (When you spend each day, waiting for it to end.) Given instructions and demands I know I’d rather play in a band (I’d rather spend my days with my friends.) And I can just not wait To get through this day Grab my shit and hang out with my mates When I’m making music with my friends Life is better off in the end Tell me how do you feel when you’re jamming with your pals? (When you spend each day, dreading that it will end). Do you forget about all life’s ups and downs? (Forgetting all of life’s ups and downs.) That’s how you know that life is Better off
Track Name: Joe
Another life lost for the cause Another life given away too soon Not given your chance in this life Conscription sentenced you to doom Just a true hero You heeded the call You knew there was a job for you to do Sent overseas To fight in a war That would ultimately be the death of you You’re gone but not forgotten I’m left to live this life on my own But your loss won’t be in vain I walk this Earth without you But I will walk it with pride Just to say I know your name Now we live with our freedom intact And I full heartedly raise my glass to you We could not live our lives in peace Without what you had to do I! Will live my! Life in your! Your image!I! Will live my! Life in your! Your image!
Track Name: Welfare Mentality
There needs to be a change In the mindset of this land If you can’t be fucked working Why should we heed your demands? We send away refugees That would be willing to try To contribute to this country Maybe it’s time for your goodbye
Track Name: Coward's Way Out
When you’ve got nothing left And morbid thoughts fill your mind Keep your head up It all comes down to your outlook There’s help around There are people there for you. It’s not painless When you leave everyone in pain. Long term solution For a short term problem Cowards’ way out How can you bring yourself To do this to them? The bad times will pass It all comes down to your mind Life is a gift The most important gift you’ll have.To throw that away To leave us now Would be your biggest mistake Keep your head up It’s a challenge to overcome
Track Name: Nauru
The propaganda that you spread The reason so much blood is shed Spreading your racist, bogan views Conversing our lives to pursue Fuck the racists off to Nauru And that Abbott cunt can fucking rot there too. These people you mistreat are fellow human beings The shit you do to them, I can’t believe just what I’ve seen. The filthy lies that you spew The shit that fills the evening news I close my eyes and try to see What the fuck is wrong with our society? Fuck off the racists cunts, The world would be much better off. Fuck off the racists cunts, They do not speak for the populace And it goes like this!
